Try pong in a different way

In this small game, you have 5 lives and you must score as many points as you can. The game also has a highscore table.


W = UP

 S = Down

How is this a puzzle platformer?

As far as Pong games go, this is fairly simplistic. There's no AI to speak of, the opponent simply moves in a set pattern – so you don't need to be clever to win, just patient.

A new ball being thrown in happens too quick so you might not have time to catch it; also sometimes it bounces fully vertically or horizontally for a while until it shoots elsewhere at a wildly different angle (which is good so you don't get stuck, but bad because the change is so big that it's unexpected).

Finally, the high score isn't that great of a feature because you are only competing with yourself, but have to enter the name every time – which will only be useful if the same computer is used by multiple people.

So there's a lot of space for improvement, but it's not a bad game overall.

It's basically like a pong game, and the 5 lives is an interesting game mechanic.
However, some issues I have are that the ball will randomly switch directions, and the ball will randomly pick a direction to go after someone scored. These two issues make the game a bit more irritating at times.
Some things that would be nice is a community scoreboard so we can beat each other, also maybe give the opponent some A.I. instead of having it go up and down.
